Asked by May 05, 2014 at 01:45 AM about the 2008 Chrysler 300 LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes I turn the key, it turns on
quick ... Sometimes I turn the key
,hold it on a lil bit , and then let go,a
couple seconds later it turns on what
might the problem be ...is it a fuse , a
sensor ? A say a fuse or sensor
because when I first got the car I
needed a jump once and I didn't
know that the battery was in the
trunk not the front so I jump started it
from a positive post I found by a fuse
box it had a positive label on it do I
thought I would use that and i used
the metal body for ground and it
started the car in a weird way but
after that my car been acting funny
so any advice

You jumped your car properly... those posts are there for just such a thing. The ignition issue you're having sounds more like the switch itself. You may want to have it looked at. I had a Pontiac that had an issue like this and the car shut off while driving, so be careful. also your battery, I believe, like the sebring, is infront the driver side wheel well.
